'Star of the Week!'

Our school mascot is Bubsy. You will have the

pleasure of meeting Bubsy when he

comes to your house to stay! He will go home with the

'Star of the Week' on a Friday, spend time with their family

and will be brought back on a Monday. Children will share

their weekend news with the rest of the class. 


Reading Books

We have now started sending

home reading books, along with Reading Records. We ask that

you make a brief comment the record book each time you

hear your child read. Make reading time a pleasure for you both. 

Sharing a book at bedtime allows children to learn

the importance of putting expression into their reading and it is a great time for you to relax! A great emphasis is put upon 

reading in Reception so ensure that you read with your child 

as often as possible. Read a variety of texts including

magazines, bookscomics, poems and information books!

The Phoenix Library offers a range of these and

is a great place to start!

Here are some great resources to purchase to help your child with their reading at home xxx


Take a look on this website...


Kind Reminders!

Please can all clothes be labelled with your child's name.

We will collect £1.50 every Monday to cover the cost of

our daily fruit snack and also our weekly cooking sessions.

Diolch yn fawr! smiley


Take a look at some of the work that we have been doing...



Learning all about telling the time!

We have enjoyed playing in our 'Time Station'.

We selected different time cards and practiced displaying them on the mini clocks. 


Making animal masks ready for our Immersion Day smiley 

We will be wearing these for the day. Our classroom will be transformed into a barn. The teachers are going to be the farmers and we will be the farm animals. We can't wait! 



Farm Animal Puppets

Here we are creating our own puppets to take home. We are getting really good now at manipulating tools and resources independently. 


Animals and their Young

We completed a 'Bubsy Challenge' where we had to write the names of the animal babies. We used the work bank to help us.


Our Farm Shop is now open!

We look forward to Janet Chaplin coming into visit us next month. She will be reading a story related to our current theme 'On the Farm'. 



Bubsy Challenges

Here we are completing the daily Welsh weather chart. We are learning the days of the week and also how to answer the question 'Sut mae'r tywydd heddiw?'



Learning how to play interactive games. We love 'Hairy Letters' and 'Monkey Maths'. We have also been developing our mouse control by learning how to 'drag and drop' objects on screen...




Day to day Maths

scrambled eggs on toast and bread rolls - yummy, yummy!


 'Growth Mindset'

Nothing is impossible! Miss Guy and Miss Solomon remind us that 'practise makes perfect!'
